Clive Eksteen is stern about charging CSA for his unfair dismissal.
Former South African left-arm spinner, Clive Eksteen said that he will definitely file a case against Cricket South Africa (CSA). Initially, the CSA found Eksteen guilty on one of five charges.
‘I am in possession of evidence that exculpates me, which has come to light after the conclusion of the disciplinary inquiry; evidence which was known to CSA at the time’, Eksteen stated.
‘In these circumstances, I shall immediately be referring a dispute to the CCMA regarding my unfair dismissal. All of the evidence presented at my disciplinary inquiry, as well as the additional evidence which has now come to light, as I have set out above, will be laid out before the CCMA’, he added.
He also stated that the CSA made him look like he was involved in suspicious dealings which had a huge impact on his integrity and reputation.
Eksteen was allegedly guilty of ending a sponsorship deal less than the amount prescribed by the CSA. However, he claimed that the sponsorship deal was signed by his superior.
‘My attorney and I are totally confident that I will be vindicated in due course. Unfortunately‚ I believe I have been made a scapegoat for the shortcomings of others and I believe further that relevant evidence has been ignored or overlooked’, Eksteen said.
Eksteen is a former left-arm spinner who played in six ODI’s and seven Tests for South Africa. He was also the captain of the team for three seasons. To learn more about cricket formats, check out Betwala.
